Italian Peas and Eggs

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by RedVinoGirl

This is a slightly spicy and VERY filling side dish that you can alter to suit your family's tastes. It's the absolute only way to get my kids and I to eat peas! Simple, filling and TASTY! This comes from my father-in-law's family where inexpensive foods were used to create a filling meal. My husband LOVES to sop up the pea/oil juice with fresh Italian bread. Great as a side for meat dishes.
